    no way to unscramble 2.5.2 dtivo?

    From scanning the message boards here it sounds like there is currently no known way to unscramble a directivo running 2.5.2 without locating a 2.0.1 & 2.5 image to restore from and reflash the prom.

    Have I missed something?

    if you mean noscramble (so you can extract), then you just take an upgraded 2.5.2 unit with the hacked prom and make the proper changes in the kernel. if you do a search on my username, i posted the necessary commands a while back.

    however, i think you probably are refering to a way of hacking a currently running 2.5.2 unit. the only way to do it is to use an extra drive, replace the prom via whatever method you like (25xtreme will work just dandy), then kill the initrd on your current 2.5.2 installation.

    yes, i meant noscramble for extraction.

    i'll look for your directions and dig up a spare drive to flash with and write a summary afterwards.

    i really like the idea of making video CDs of my favorite shows.
